Nevada held its caucus Saturday, and the early results suggest a big win for socialist Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.  Former Vice President Joe Biden is far behind in second place, with Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and billionaire anti-Trumper Tom Steyer battling it out for an even more distant third place.

Fox News reports:

Sen. Bernie Sanders will win the Nevada caucuses, Fox News can project, furthering the democratic socialist’s lead over his Democratic rivals and raising the question as to whether he can be stopped on his path to the Democratic nomination.

With four percent of delegates in, Sanders has 56 percent.

According to the early returns, former Vice President Joe Biden is in second place with 19.9 percent, billionaire Tom Steyer has 9.3 percent, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., has eight percent, and former South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg has 5.8 percent. Ultimately 36 delegates are at stake.

It’s continuing to look like a socialism vs. capitalism, Bernie vs. Trump contest is likely this November . . . unless establishment Democrats find a way to stop Bernie (without causing his followers to riot in the streets).

It’s official:  Bernie wins Nevada caucus.

The Hill reports:

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) was projected to post a decisive victory in the Nevada caucuses Saturday, cementing his status as the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination by turning out a diverse coalition of voters.

Early returns showed Sanders dominating among young people and Latinos, who make up nearly one-third of the electorate here. The Vermont senator also won several Las Vegas caucus sites, underscoring his strong support among the labor union rank and file who are a powerful force in Nevada politics.

We’ll continue to update this post as more results and responses come in.
